FCX Performance Acquires Two Companies

Columbus, OH-based FCX Performance, Inc., No. 35 on MDM's list of the top 40 industrial distributors, has completed two acquisitions that will expand its product & service offering as well its geographic reach.

The two transactions include the acquisition of the Solares Controls Division of Solares Florida Corp. and Stafford, TX-based Baro Companies, which include the operations of Baro Controls, Inc. and Baro Process Products.

Based in Lakeland, FL, Solares Controls serves the Florida process control market.

Baro serves the Gulf Coast market with valve automation, pumps mixers and related products & services. The company serves the chemical, petro-chemical, oil & gas pipeline, refinery, power and other process markets.

According to a news release, the acquired companies' names will not be changed.
